My grandfather was a resident at Grace Presbyterian for about 1 and a half years. That is, until he was hospitalized and passed away at the beginning of this year. He was in the mid-stages of Alzheimer's and required daily assistance and some supervision. The entire time he was there, I made regular visits on Saturdays to spend quality time with him. During the times that I visited the assisted living community, I'd found it to be rather helpful. My grandfather, although not exceedingly healthy, always appeared to be comfortable and cared for. He had constant help with grooming, hygiene, eating habits/ability and mobility. The amenities were copius and I noticed that my grandpa really benefited from being in the Garden Club. Certain times, he was not in a good enough mood to attend other social gatherings. Still, he always found time for gardening. This was something he'd always been interested in before he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and I was happy to see that his living community offered him an old past-time. Occasionally, he even seemed happy to be at some of the holiday events they had. Also, my grandpa was an ordained Reverend and when the disease took effect, he could no longer preach. So, I was overjoyed when I discovered that his assisted living provider was Christian-based and had worship services on Sundays and bible study opportunities. The Christian environment also seemed to play a big part in the staff's attitude. They were, for the most part, easy going, nice and understanding. However, I did think that sometimes they were a bit condescending when speaking to the residents. To be honest, there was only one particular staff member who made me feel this way. The remaining staff members were all pretty calm, cool and collected. Another major advantage of this provider was how they truly cared about my grandpa's health and well-being. They offered fitness classes at their fitness center and really helped the residents stay in shape. When my grandpa first moved there, he went to the fitness center a couple of times. Anyway, if I were to rate Grace Presbyterian on a scale from one to ten, I'd give them a nine. And, that's pretty optimistic coming from me!
